Josh returned to his hometown for what would be the last time.

Nestled at the foot of the mountains, it was an ideal place to raise a family until a wind-driven wildfire burned it to the ground.

Josh remembered it happened just days before the senior prom that he and Ellen were going to attend. He wondered what had happened to her. The disaster struck so fast he didn’t have time to say good-bye to his classmate and nextdoor neighbor.

He saw some residents had started to rebuild. Sadly, many had opted to leave for good including his own family.
